The 5th Toshin Gekitotsu online qualifier just finished this weekend, and since it was the last one ASW made it extra special by having both FAB and Nage on commentary! In addition, the EVO 2015 representative was chosen by having the Top8 players battle it out. Only Dogura and Rion were able to make it though. And finally, the qualifier closed with a quick exhibition set between FAB and Nage. The archives are available to watch on the official ASW Youtube channel. You might notice that Saki Yoshida is wearing a Ramlethal hoodie, which is […]

Machaboo, who is currently the #1 ranked Guilty Gear Xrd player and one of the best GG players in general, stopped by Mikado this Friday and got in several sets vs their best players! Since there are a lot of videos in this post, they have been posted after the jump.

The official Arc Revolution Cup website just updated with the tourney format for all 3 games. Unfortunately, it’s as I expected: Xrd will be a 1v1 single elimination tourney. There was a bit of protest from the Japanese playerbase in last year’s Arc Revo when this format was used, but I guess it’s hard to justify a teams format for GG when its roster size got reduced from 25 to 14.

The main Arc Revo qualifiers will be taking place from 6/14 to 8/23. The finals will be held at Tokyo Bigsight TFT on 8/30. Arc Revo is pretty much Japan’s national ASW tournament, so this is […]

Mikado held their 2nd Guilty Gear Xrd singles tournament last night, and they had a special pre-tourney treat for people watching their stream: a big exhibition set between Ogawa, Machaboo, and Nemo! While Nemo has been going to Mikado regularly since the game’s release, Machaboo and especially Ogawa are extremely rare to see. It is pretty amazing to have 3 of the OG gods of the game all gathered in one place. This set of videos is pretty much required watching for all GG fans everyone.
